Onchocerciasis is characterized by the presence of numerous microfilariae in the skin, formation of subcutaneous nodules and eye lesions that can lead to blindness. We present a case, rather uncommon in our environment, in which an incomplete life cycle of the parasite, led to a single intramuscular nodule. The clinical symptoms and histological features are described, together with the treatment, using Ivermectin.
